Choosing a Catalog Year
While most LCC pathways remain active and applicable for five years, several are effective for one, two, or three years. The effective dates are listed on each individual pathway. The catalog year is the first year of those effective dates.
If your first semester of enrollment as shown on your LCC web transcript is in the academic year 2023-2024, please refer to the program pathways listed below for catalog year 2023-2024.
If you first enrolled in courses prior to the 2023-2024 academic year (as indicated on your web transcript), you may select pathways available in the catalog year you began, as well as those available after that year. Refer to the pathways in the catalog years in which you are eligible, to find the pathway with the greatest number of courses you have already completed and in the area of study you wish to pursue.
Note: Students are expected to ensure their program of study and the catalog year is always accurate in Banner Self Service. If the program of study you are following has changed, or if the catalog year is no longer valid because the effective dates have passed, your record must be updated by submitting a Program and Catalog Year Update Request form via the Registrar Forms webpage.
Before declaring a degree or certificate program:
Contact the Academic Advising Department
Review the General Education requirements needed for specific degrees:
- For 2020-2021 or later academic year degrees, visit the General Education webpage.
- For 2019-2020 academic year and earlier degrees, click the appropriate General Education Core or "Transfer Degrees (MTA)" tab of LCC General Education.
LCC makes every effort to limit revisions to the pathways during their effective timeframe. However, the College reserves the right to update certificate and degree title changes, and make course changes as needed, without prior notice.
File an application for graduation with the Registrar's Office by the deadline for the semester you plan to graduate.
